Crisis Reporting with Micah Albert

Micah Albert, photojournalist for the Pulitzer Center, joins OURTDNA and OUSPJ Tuesday, May 8.

Journalists represent the public. It is the journalist’s job to disseminate information to the people. Reporting becomes difficult, however, when attempting to expand coverage to new areas.

Pulitzer Center photojournalist Micah Albert makes it a mission to cover relatively unknown issues in extremely undercovered regions. Albert’s clients include the New York TimesSmithsonian Magazine and National Geographic Traveler among many others.

Albert extended the media’s reach into the food crisis in Yemen, Dinka cattle camps in Sudan and gender-based violence in the rebel-controlled Democratic Republic of the Congo along with many others as well.

Albert will be joining OURTDNA and OUSPJ in a special joint meeting Tuesday, May 8 at 5:00 P.M. in Scripps 114. Please, take advantage of this incredible opportunity and join us for a Skype discussion with the storied photojournalist.
